Ferdinand|EducationGhana| October 31|Implement the payment of Allowances to Teachers in deprived Areas – GNAT to GES
The leadership of the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has called on the Ghana Education Service to Implement the payment of Allowances to Teachers in deprived Areas.
This was contained in a Communique issued by the Union after its 2022 Mandatory National Council meeting held on 25th to 29th October 2022.
The National Council of the Ghana National Association of Teachers, GNAT, is made up of 5 National Officers, 32 National Executive members, and 127 District Chairmen, with 3 Management Staff,
and Full-time Staff across the regions in attendance, having met at the 2022 mandatory meeting at the Teachers Village, Abankro from 25th-29th October 2022, and deliberated on all the issues tabled before it, do hereby issue this Communique.
” Payment of allowances based on a percentage of monthly gross salary to teachers in areas designated as deprived, as enjoined by the 2020 Collective Agreement between the Teacher Unions and the GES has not been implemented.”
”Council, therefore, calls for the implementation of the said provision in the Collective Agreement before the end of December 2022.” They said.
2022 Continuous Professional Development (CPD) allowance
The Union indicated that Payment of the 2022 Continuous Professional Development (CPD) allowance to Teachers had not been done, as of 29th October 2022.
”We, therefore, call on the Management of the GES to ensure that the said allowance is paid before the end of December 2022, failure of which the Union would advise themselves.” They said.
The Union disagreed with the use of the availability of vacancy as the determinant for promotion to the grades of Director II and I is a disincentive to Teachers, thus causing them disaffection, and frustration, impeding career progression within the Service, and consequently affecting their pension/retirement emoluments, at the end of Service.
”Council, therefore, calls for the application of the principles for promotion as prescribed by the GES on the Senior ranks to the Grades of Director II and I.” The statement said.
”That moving forward, promotions to Director II and I should not be based on vacancies, and teachers who qualify for promotion to the said ranks should be promoted.” They said.
